Global Perspectives on Citizen Social Science

  • 1. Global Innovation Gathering


This CoAct co-publication brings together voices from around the globe to unpack what CSS needs to account for to be truly inclusive. Voices from diverse contexts share what science should look like when accounting for multiple voices, needs, and traditions worldwide.

In a ten months process, we are collecting blog post-style contributions from around the world organized along five key topics. In November, we will compile all voices in an open publication format.

Two years ago, we came together with a group of *Open *Citizen *Social Science (OCSS) experts from all around the world -from remote and urban settings, from striving and challenging contexts- and asked ourselves, What do Open Science and Citizen Social Science have in common? What can we learn from each other? And why should we collaborate? Deriving from the many conversations we had with the Open Citizen Social Science community, including many of you, we identified five crucial topics to bring forward in this compilation through contributions from everyone who seeks to share their approaches, best practices, failures and essential lessons learned from across the world.
